It’s the “most wonderful time of the year”! Yeah, you can thank me later for getting a Christmas jingle stuck in your head.
But really, it is the most wonderful time of the year! Mostly because it is Christmastime…but also because it’s GIVEAWAY DAY! Over at Sew Mama Sew, hundreds of ladies (and maybe a man or two) are giving away handmade items or supplies.
I debated what I wanted to giveaway…what was something special I have to offer? I am amazingly blessed with vintage patterns. The thrift store by me has an enormous collection of vintage patterns, fully intact with all the pattern pieces. And I know not everyone has such easy access to such great patterns!
So I bring to you today, a couple of my favorite patterns that I have sewn up many times. And I’d love to give them away to you! I have one girl’s patterns and one women’s pattern, all going to one lucky reader!
First is Butterick 4831 in size 12. I have sewn this pattern 3 times, and it is great! This is actually the pattern that I sewed my first zip fly with. And I love the notes from the previous pattern owner on it! (She even added a little pattern modification, which I followed, making the fly a breeze to sew.) Here are a few pics of the shorts that I have sewn with this pattern, sizing it down to fit Sweet Pea, and sizing it up to fit me!
This pattern is great too. When I first sewed this, I thought maybe I didn’t need to add all of the darts in this pattern, but surprisingly those darts are needed (who would have thought)! Here’s a pic of this pattern all sewn up….love this dress! (Wore it yesterday to church.)
Simply leave a comment telling me what is your favorite time of year!
One comment per person.
GIVEAWAY runs from today through December 13, 2013, 5 pm PST. One winner will be chosen and announced! My fingers are crossed for you!
